Littles Learning Link Up: October 13, 2015 Leaf Mosaics Toddler Style

 Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (toward the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children.
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child.

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

What have we been up to?

Last week I shared a little update that included our My Father's World Kindergarten L:Leaf unit. As the leaves continue to change and fall in our neck of the woods, we have continued having fun in the leaves and with leaf projects, though we have moved on in our lessons. Last week I came up with a simple craft for the preschool class at our homeschool co-op. This is similar to the Paper Mosaic Pumpkins we made last year.

Leaf Mosaics Toddler Style

I printed out a leaf outline that I found by searching on Google Images. Then I cut fall colored construction paper into 1 inch squares. All the children had to do is glue them onto the leaf. When they were finished we (myself and the other preschool teacher) cut out the leaves and had the children glue them onto a piece of construction paper.

Now onto:
Littles Learning Link Up Features

On my last Littles Learning Link Up post, there were 24 wonderful posts linked up! 
I will be picking one randomly selected post to share, plus the top clicked-on posts.  

Please remember, for this to be a successful linky party, we really need to be visiting some of the other posts that are linked up. See what catches your eye, stop by, pin the post to a relevant board, and perhaps leave a comment to let the author of the blog know you have been by for a visit. I know I appreciate others commenting and letting me know they have read my posts, so I am sure others do too.

This week's Randomly Selected Post is: 

Kelly from Raising Samuels Homeschool shared M is for Manger by Crystal Bowman and Teri McKinley (Book Review)

I would love to have you join in this week! What sort of activities do you do with your young children? Do you have some favorite activities you would like to share? I invite you to link up below. I will be pinning posts on my Toddler Ideas or other relevant board, and I would love to feature some of the activities each week from what is linked up.

Please know I may share a picture from your post and link back to it, along with sharing how we used your idea in our school time. By linking up you are giving me permission to use a picture from your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. Additionally, if you choose to try out any of the ideas with your child, please make sure you give credit where credit is due.

Linky will be open through Sunday night, to give me time to check out all the posts and get the Features organized. Please take the time to visit some of the other wonderful posts linked up.
